History

The Emergency Medicine residency program began in 1974, funded by a grant from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, as a two-year (PGY-II and PGY-III) program in the Department of Surgery. In 1982, The Johns Hopkins Hospital assumed responsibility for the program's funding, and Emergency Medicine became a division within the Department of Surgery. In July 1984, Dr. Sivertson, a 1983 graduate of the program, assumed the leadership of what was then the Division of Emergency Medicine. Dr. Kelen, a 1984 program graduate, headed both the residency and research programs. In keeping with the American Board of Emergency Medicine's dictate that all emergency medicine programs must be at least three years in length, the program adopted a three-year, PGY-I to -III format in July 1987. In 1994, the Department of Emergency Medicine was established as a full, independent academic department within the School of Medicine.
